The Gravedancers

Directed by the guy who made the ultra-fun “The Convent”, three friends reunite for a friend’s funeral. As part of the grieving process, they go drinking in a cemetery. When one of them finds a piece of paper depicting the “Grave-Dancer’s Lament”, they start dancing and singing on top of tombstones. One in the grave of a murderous musician, another in the grave of a pyromaniac kid, and another with the ghost of a psychosexual judge. When it becomes clear that the ghosts are looking for some sort of vengeance and start to hurt the kids, it’s time to get some paranormal help. This is definitely one of the better films to come out of the yearly “8 Films To Die For”, at least from the American side. It’s scary but also humorous, and very well acted, although for the life of me I can’t get around Dominic Purcell’s acting. The man can’t emote to save his life and will always be known as the worst Dracula in the history of cinema. I was surprised about Josie Maran, who is pretty much known as a hot model, but she’s a pretty damn good actress too. I loved the ghost’s appearance, reminded me a lot of the ones in Disney’s Haunted Mansion. In the end, this is a very fun and sometimes, scary horror film for everyone to enjoy.
